I'd love to go for a pint with Nick!
'Yeah, so like I said, I was getting the drinks in...'
'Were you though? That's not what I saw'
'Well, OK, I gave my mate some money...'
'No, that's not what happened is it? From what I saw you had no input in the transaction whatsoever'.
I probably wont go as it's on Tuesday and I have far too much work to do, and no money for the train to Manchester, so if someone wants to pretend to be me and go...
That lazy "someone else do it for me" attitude will fit in perfectly on Overprivileged Island.

If there's anything I can do to assist in this, please let me know!
at some point "I could sell snow to the eskimos".
You could say "sand to the arabs" but they might think for some reason you were being racist.
Selling or carrying coal(s) to Newcastle is an idiom of British origin describing a foolhardy or pointless action. It refers to the fact that historically, the economy of Newcastle upon Tyne in north-eastern England was heavily dependent on the distribution and sale of coal—by the time the phrase was first recorded in 1538, 15,000 tonnes of coal were being exported annually from the area—and therefore any attempt to sell coal to Newcastle would be doomed to failure because of the economic principle of supply and demand.
Timothy Dexter, an American entrepreneur, succeeded in defying the idiom in the eighteenth century. Renowned for his eccentricity and widely regarded as a buffoon, he was persuaded to sail a shipment of coal to Newcastle by rival merchants plotting to ruin him. However, he instead yielded a large profit after his cargo arrived during a miners' strike which had crippled local production. More prosaically, the American National Coal Association asserted that the United States was able to profitably sell coal to Newcastle in the early 1990s, and 70,000 tonnes of low-sulphur coal was imported by Alcan from Russia in 2004 for their local aluminium smelting plant. However, this was in the context of Newcastle's traditional coal industry having stagnated so much by the end of the twentieth century that the last exports from the area were six years prior to Alcan's venture.
With the increasing onset of globalization, parallels in other industries are being found, and the idiom is now frequently used by the media when reporting business ventures whose success may initially appear just as unlikely. It has been referenced in coverage of the export to India of Saudi Arabian Saffron and chicken tikka masala from the United Kingdom, the sale of Scottish pizzas to Italy, the flowing of champagne and cheese from Britain to the French, and the production of manga versions of William Shakespeare from Cambridge for Japan,
in the epic truck football match of 2007. ah, goodtimes.
I'm going straight to the tabloids as 'a friend' and selling some quite fantastic secrets. You're gonna be a star, son!
If I did get on, which I won't, I would hire Max Clifford. He would then arrange to have you shot.
my name is Tom Aldous, and I live at One London House, Big Street, London, LO1 NDoN.
The man is a hero
He'll never be able to stay hidden now! I hope Max realises what double standards you're operating here.
to serialise his autobiography.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
amazing. Show them that you are 120% competent and you don't understand the word 'fail'.
which means every picture of me with a drink in my eye from saturday has to be deleted.
If you got onto this and Gareth got onto Eggheads my tv viewing life would be complete.
Isn't your current profile picture with the fry-up the one you attached to your application? They must have been impressed by your man-of-the-people credentials.
One of the questions was 'how would you stand out from other contestants?'. I said, 'I'm not a boisterous northerner'
if you get on...
'stick to masturbation you tard'.
Eat my shit, sirallun
to sell to you ........... NICE
On being called into the boardroom- oh dear oh dear oh dear...
please go mental, with all sorts of insults about Spurs. Then, and only then, will I give you the respect you crave.
"I have come with a list of people who must eat my shit:
1) Sir Alan Sugar
Right, let's get to it."
I hope you get on. I really do. You should probably get some glasses/contact lenses before then, though.
'Well siralun, I don't think I get the credit I deserve for my luck with the ladies'.
" FACEBOOK ME! SIRALLUN! BROWNE WITH AN E!"
Everytime he meets a woman he sleeps with her and then writes a massive letter 'E' in jizz on their bedside table.
But the thought of congealed..
urgh, I'll just go do some work shall I? Yes.
Good luck Rich!
You're mixing him up with Emo Browne.
makes me look like such a cunt. It was taken entirely out of context.
on the apprentice thing, that is, not the quote
a Russian company offered you to become their managing director for operations in the UK as long as you sent them your private details...
Do you want me to retag you on youtube or is that the kind of rambuncious behaviour that Sir Alan wants?
You would be great value on the apprentice.
leave it up. He can EMS if he doesn't approve of my tequila suicide.
I fear for my mothers health if I got on it. She reads the sun.
